Default 3 Owls & A Sad Goodbye

Sorry for being inactive. Been busy lately, preparing for my out of town work in June. I needed to sell a lot of my pets in the process. Will get them all back once i return.

Before selling magpie's other siblings off, i needed to take some vital measurements and physical check-up first just for the record

Here's magpie's younger siblings; Robin, Jay & Cardinal (cardy's shy )




Roughly 6 inches high from talons to ear tufts




My new temporary personal fave, Cardy (short for cardinal)




An eye for an eye




Guess who's lunch for today?! (and yes, this is payback for the chick lol)
I'll be skipping the gory part since i still love snakes!




Bye cute little owls! I'll see your new replacements by September

They're adorable! Too bad you can't keep them.

I've never thought of someone keeping owls. How does one go about doing this, and what do they eat

They're really small for an owl. Even as adults they rarely exceed 9 inches in height plus they prefer living close to the ground than flying high so their space requirement does not need to be grande.

My babies eat the snakes pictured below

On a normal sunny day they eat superworms and crickets so they're not that hard to feed as well

That's really cool, Do you catch your snakes or do you buy them whole sale.

I'm already breeding them since i was 13. I had a huge fascination for bronzeback treesnakes when i was a kid til i realized they were the most dull of all arboreal snakes and hence their fate lol

Love the owls . I have a friend who has a large bird house in her backyard and an owl took it over and now there are baby owls. Adorable!
